About the Student Ambassadors

Who Do We Engage?

Prospective Students

“Recruiting prospective students is what determines the future of this university and the future of the workforce, and I feel that I am a crucial part in talking to the best and brightest potential students.” 
- Drew Banziger

Current Students

"Student Ambassadors allows me to connect current students with the amazing opportunities provided by the Dean, the College, and our extensive network."
- Zachary Durliat 



“The alumni here at Bowling Green are very interested in what is going on in our college and love hearing about what’s new around campus. As a student ambassador I get to see firsthand that they look to connect with current students and help them in any way they can!”
- Trevor Schaller

Student Ambassadors In Action

This list includes a majority of the events that Student Ambassadors actively participate in.  However, we always look for new ways to engage prospective students, current students, and alumni. This list is subject to change based on changing student preferences, and we are always open to new ideas for events.

Bus Olympics Winners with Dean

Business Olympics

The Business Olympics is a
competition among students in the Schmidthorst College of Business where students compete in several mini-games designed to test business skills.  Student Ambassadors plan, coordinate, and staff this event to ensure the Olympics run smoothly.

Dean's Advisory Council for Diversity and Inclusion

To help engage students of all backgrounds, Student Ambassadors work with the Dean's Advisory Council on Diversity and Inclusion (DACODI) to staff events.  Student Ambassadors facilitate the events and promote engagement.


Hatch Group


Entrepreneurship Week, or E-Week, is an entire week dedicated to fostering the entrepreneurial spirit and staffing the main events of the week including The Hatch. Student Ambassadors have multiple opportunities to engage prospective students, current students, and alumni through staffing events, speaking with visiting high school students, and meeting prominent alumni.

Freshman Orientation

At the beginning of the academic year, Student Ambassadors play an important role to introduce first year business students to the Schmidthorst College of Business at BGSU. Student Ambassadors welcome students to the College, staff the Schmidthorst College of Business Picnic, and work with Peer Leaders to guide students to their 1st Day of Class.


Traveling for Schmidthorst Events

Student ambassadors often travel to alumni events with the Dean throughout the country. At these events, ambassadors network with alumni and present how the Schmidthorst College of Business has impacted them.
